My Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. There are too many people fighting this battle and lots who have won so I thought I would do my bit to help raise money. This challenge caught my attention as I’m the least sporty person you know… but I can swim! I’m pretty slow but can manage about 30 lengths of my local pool. I’ve worked out that the pool is 20mts so that means 500 lengths! I intend to start today due to commitments at the end of August. I will give myself 31 days from now so I have to complete by 21st August. I’m going to front breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly( NOT BUTTERFLY!!!..that would be too hilarious to watch!!) my way to 10k in August to help raise money for Cancer Research UK. Please show your support and help fund life-saving research by donating to my page. I would appreciate any small amount and will keep you updated on my progress. Many thanks everyone and much love Dawn xxx
